After some time she becomes known and guides women about difficult births. Justine Siegemund became a City Midwife in 1683 and became Court Midwife in Berlin.

She changed the idea of midwifery in Europe. Her google doodle is showing in the USA, UK, Germany, and many more. During “Court Midwife” she published “The Court Midwife’’ which focused on infant health. 

Although in German midwives there was no proper way to communicate and guide women about safe birth. The information was only delivered orally. But in oral they were not all the knowledge delivered to women. Therefore, “The Court Midwife’’ was the first document to deliver full detail about safe birth. This was the best way to deliver all the information through documentation.
